Session Description: Talking on the telephone – How it’s good for donors and good for charities

Lauren will show us how using the telephone in fundraising can bring a charity closer to their donors, and donors closer to their beneficiaries.

Great conversations can have a positive impact on both charities and donors. They maximize lifetime value and happiness for donors, and provide long-term, committed donors for charities.
